Curious if they would work with Macbook Pro's. I know that Kingston' cheaper branding (KVR series) although sames specs, for some reason is known to cause kernal panics in Macbook Pro's and so do some other "value" brands. While their Apple certified ram is fine. I bought the certified for my MBP. Paid below $200 for 1gb + 2gb matched kit total.

WEAK DUDE!!

I paid exactly that for my 2x512mb last october....ordered through redflagdeals.


Now im mad.:mad:
Did you curse the dealership when you drove your new car off the lot?

Did you curse the corner store when you left and took a bite of your candybar?

Everybody paid that much last October. There is just no reason to continue to, now.

DirectCanada may be cheaper. My Powerbook Ram was much cheaper than NCIX, but NCIX price matches anyway and I think they are the same company. Damn, it feels like RFD in here.

Haahahaha! I paid over $3000 for my first computer. It came equipped with a mind-boggling 250 meg hard drive, 4 screaming megs of RAM, a monitor that showed colours up to an eye-popping 640x480. Oh and it dazzled all with Windows 3.1. Years later it wasn't even worthy as a give-away.

I guess I should be mad, too.

That's nothing. My first computer was a Toshiba laptop with a 20 MB HD and had one (or maybe two MB of RAM). Pre Windows 3.1. Just a blue screen with white pixels. Recycled it last year.

Ha! not even close! My first laptop was a patio stone and chisel! Now I use it to keep my feet off the dirt...

All you youngsters missed out on the really good deals.
Like when I bought my first computer, a Radio Shack model 1, complete with 4K, yes that's K as in kilobytes, for just under $3000.
Notice there is no mention of a hard disk, they were'nt invented yet. Even 5.25" floppy drives were extra, at $700 for a whole 120K (there's that K again) of storage.
Most of us used cassette tape decks to store and load software programs and data.
My next system was a giant leap in technology, a Radio Shack model lll, with a whole 16K of ram and 2 double density floppies built in, mind you, it cost a tad more at $3600, but man was it a screamer.
The first hard drive I bought was a MicroScience 20meg, which cost $1100, and I installed it in my "state of the art" Ollivetti portable, which weighed 48lbs and was a large suitcase thing with a 9" crt screen.

Problem with most of the memory stick MIRs I've found (including this one) is that theya re only good for one per order so if you order a matched pair of sticks (on the same PO) then you only get to claim one MIR ...
Some people can use a work address.

Hi HowEver,

You posted a few deals here, including that one.

I'm in search for nice price on memory for my iMac 24" white (refurb, coming soon). I'm wandering if the deals you posted here should work fine in it?

I had crucial memory in my actual PowerBook for 3 years, no problem. Not familiar with the Corsair memory, that is even much cheaper, but on the site DirectCanada, there is special memory noted Mac, while some are just "plain memory" I guest.

Any thought on that?

According to Memory upgrades, flash media, and usb storage at Crucial.com, the iMac does not support dual channel memory.

I do not know exactly what does that term mean, but from my understanding, this modules should be avoided!
As far as I know, dual-channel RAM can be used in the Mac (could be wrong), but the Internet is full of false information. I quick Google search of dual-channel RAM on the Mac revealed users posting that paired RAM on the iMacs boosted performance (as an example). I guess since the introduction of GMA-graphics Mac mini and MacBook, people think every Mac requires and benefits from the use of paired RAM. ;) And even then, the Mac mini and MB don't require matched RAM.
